Rugby Para Todos is a not-for-profit organization made up of young professionals that seeks through rugby´s philosophy to promote a social change.

 Our mission is to contribute, by means of rugby, to the physical and mental development of the children and teenagers living in poor areas of Venezuela.

 Our vision is to expand and spread rugby as a powerful tool for social development and integration all over the country.

 Since 2011 up to now, we have succeeded in serving a population of more than 4000 children and teenagers of different poor areas from Caracas and regions around the country.  During this time we have been able to create and maintain two rugby children´s schools.

 “Gigantes de Mesuca” -the Giants of Mesuca school- is located at the heart of the biggest and most dangerous neighborhood in Latin America: Petare.

 On February 15th, 2014 through a joint effort together with the Mayor's Office of Sucre, the school opened its doors, serving around 100 children and teenagers from the community.

 Mesuca has become a benchmark regarding rugby development for children and teenagers in Venezuela, continually organizing events where other schools of the country have participated.

 In January, 2016, our second school began activities, this time in the San Jose de las Clavellinas, a slum located in Guarenas, (a satellite town, 30 minutes from Caracas.)

 Nowadays, this school caters around 50 children and teenagers of the area.

 Besides keeping these two schools, Rugby Para Todos constantly carries out sports initiation workshops and rugby festivals for children from poor areas of the country.

 However, the economic and political crisis the country is going through has made difficult to continue with the project.

 Balls and all the material of training have deteriorated, uniforms and shoes have worn out and our means of transport are left without of spare parts. Even more seriously due to food shortages and the high cost of living, kids are not receiving the nutrients needed to grow up as the future talents of rugby.

 In spite of our efforts it has become extremely difficult to remain active.

 Our dream to use rugby as a tool for peace and social development is about to vanish.

 But you can help us to change this situation.

 To keep touching the lives of these children is in your hands. You can make it possible!

 Please support our fund-raising campaign.  We need to collect $1000, the minimum amount to cover six months planned activity.

 It doesn´t matter how much you can give… Your contribution will always be important to reach our goal. Our children will greatly appreciate.

 You can also support us by sharing our project through social networks, you can help us to reach the largest possible number of people all over the world.

 Let´s between all shape the new men and women of this time, the future of the country lies on them. At this historic moment in Venezuela, sports are the means for change and rugby its best implementation.

RUGBY FOR ALL! ¡RUGBY PARA TODOS!
